Pride of Argentina...

It is not often that a triumphant athlete carries the pride and joy of an entire nation upon his shoulders. Following Juan Martín del Potro's astonishing win over Roger Federer in the 2009 US Open final, the pride of Argentina was rekindled to the fullest...with celebrations, smiles, and tears splashing local newspapers and television broadcasts across the nation. For a country that has struggled with multiple political and economic challenges, del Potro must feel a righteous sense of pride as he has lifted the heads and hearts of millions back home in Argentina...in Buenos Aires...in the small town of Tandil. Por lo tanto, felicitamos no solo a Juan Martín del Potro, pero también a todo el pueblo argentino.

Keep watching until the end to hear del Potro speak in Spanish and dedicate the triumph to his coaches, his friends, and the people of Argentina.
